The only reason I don't rate this movie at the very top is that it's unusual and some folks may not
love it. I did, however!! Very odd, but very beautiful, full of amazing camera work (3-D, taken inside a cramped cave in poor light) that is by turns grand and playful. The cave art that is the subject of the film is stunning, moving, poetic, and given additional emotional punch by the musical soundtrack composed to accompany it. Wildly romantic French scenery filmed mostly in winter or early spring which gives it an austere, muted beauty. Then throw in a series of quirky interviews with various paleontologists, art historians, documentation technologists nearly all of whom are quite weird and Herzog's own idiosyncratic narration. Not like any movie you have ever seen or will likely see again, but gripping and not to be missed. I now understand that all previous, two-dimensional representations of this kind of prehistoric art that I have seen did a terrible injustice to the work.
